Epic names iOS project as Infinity Blade

Will share world with Epic Citadel and use Unreal 3 muscle

Epic Games and ChAIR Entertainment have officially named their Unreal 3 Engine project for iOS devices as Infinity Blade, and set a release date of holiday season 2010.

The game will feature the same technology used in the two companies' free demo, Epic Citadel, which was the first app to utilise Unreal Engine 3 technology on an iOS device.

"More than one million people have been introduced to the world of 'Infinity Blade' through our free app, 'Epic Citadel,' and soon everyone will be able to play our first fully featured game for iOS devices," said Epic president Mike Capps.

"With 'Infinity Blade,' ChAIR has created an amazing looking, incredibly fun game that really demonstrates the potential of triple-A mobile gaming."

The game will launch on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with a single player mode featuring action-based sword fighting and RPG aspects, but Epic has announced that free updates will bring multiplayer modes and Game Center support.
